Four Faces of Worship – Ox Workshop By Fred Blakely
May 28, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The four faces of the the creatures who surround the Throne of God represent different aspects of prophetic worship.
● Man – Communication through words, preaching, teaching, prayers, and prophecy. Sheila Parnell
● Ox – Communication through movement, dance and banners. Fred Blakely
● Eagle – Communication through pictures, painting and drawing. Tara Martin
● Lion – Communication through sound, rhythm, instruments, and voice. Wendy Wham
Historically, the Church has focused primarily on the Man aspect with the Lion as an added accent. The arts have always had a relationship with the church, but only for a limited group of people. The traditional church model has been a handful of leaders on stage, pouring into the audience.
The heavenly worship model seen and described by Ezekiel and John is not linear, but circular. Everyone surrounds the throne, everyone participates. (Everybody gets to play!) The worship is led by the presence of God sitting on His throne. Our goal is to give people permission and tools to use, to enter the throne room together and communicate their own experience of God within the group. Unity and individuality is a difficult thing to master simultaneously, so these workshops are designed to give people freedom to experiment with the process without expectation of product.
